    This place has the best seasonal sandwiches. ALSO they have wine on tap for $6 from 4-8 and who can say no to that? Tonight: Pan Seared Squash Blossom sandwich w/ heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozz & aioli

    Come for the sandwiches, stay for the beer, and return for the atmosphere. Any weekly specials will be good, if not you can always stick with the classic Winter Pig or Bahn Mi sandwich!

    The slow food is part of the experience. Grab a beer, enjoy the tunes, the awesome staff, and the atmosphere. Fun in the summer when you can look out onto a bustling Orchard St.

    You'll want to make make Black Tree your new go-to spot & try its weekly changing menu, always based on farm-to-table in-season ingredients. Check out the Winter Pig sandwich before the season's over.

    Amazing vegetarian sandwiches, changing constantly. Great for lunch or dinner. YUM. Best pickleback I have ever had. Must try the burrata, artichoke dip is delish too. Good beer selection.

    The summer duck might be the most delicious sandwich I have ever eaten. Thankfully I took it to go, so there was nobody to see me lick my plate clean.

    Great sandwiches for the price. You can't go wrong with the blue fish and soft shell crab sandwiches. The waiters and owner are super nice guys and make the experience even more enjoyable.

    I had the shredded beef hash and artichoke dip. Both were flavorful and slightly spicy. All the ingredients are sourced within 300 miles! It's such a cozy and fun atmosphere! I highly recommend!

    Service tends to be "relaxed", but friendly. Their unusual sandwiches, noodles, and other dishes are excellent; always well-spiced with interesting flavor combos.

    The best pickle backs you will ever have with a rocking punk rock vibe. Also, they have a watermelon sandwich which is exactly that and pretty good.

    Black Tree's chef/owner, Sandy Dee Hall, had to give up his adopted lamb. We asked what's behind his relationship with Smokey, and how it affected what he served on the menu. Read more

    Get the fig cocktail while its still on the menu. Vodka, apples, sparkling wine, fall spices- what's not to like?

    Try the summer mushroom sandwich and make sure to get the fried egg. The strawberry balsamic jam and smoked goat cheese pair perfectly - so good!

    Holy crap. Definitely have the grilled cheese sandwich. It would be perfect of they served tomato basil soup with it. Lamb tongue taco is great too.

    Obsessively locally-sourced food, with a rotating menu focused on one animal per week. House-made pickle backs are delicious.

    Everything is grown within 300 miles, so the cocktail menu has none of the conventional citrus and thus comes up with some interesting replacements.

    Winter pig, summer pig, whatever they call it - get it. Drinks are a bit pricey for the amount. $12 should mean a bit more than half the glass. Go for happy hour.

    No words can describe how delicious the summer pig is. The sandwiches are somewhat expensive but completely worth it.

    The sandwiches are boss. They're overpriced, but worth it. Go for lunch on weekdays to avoid a long wait.
